Amsterdam Prickly Seeded Spinach

Traditional crop in Europe for generations. This type was grown by Thos. Jefferson in the early Nineteenth Century. In 1806, Bernard McMahon of Philadelphia said it was "the hardiest kind," and that may well be true to this day. Leaves are more pointed and arrow-shaped than the common type. The sturdy plants yield over a long season, producing flat, tender, medium-green leaves with red-tinged stalks. Slower to bolt than ordinary spinach. Traditionally sown in late-summer or early fall for harvest through autumn and into winter.

Review:

I live in zone 7B and have grown this spinach and Gigante d' Inverno Spinach through last winter and now most of the way through this winter. Last year I sowed the seeds in place under cover in late October. I also planted some seed in pots in a greenhouse to replace seeds that didn't germinate. I transplanted them at the end of November and they all took just fine. Had my first harvest by February. Last year was a "normal" winter for this area and I was able to harvest every three to four weeks. This winter I planter at the beginning of October. Winter started mild and had a harvest at Christmas time and another a couple of weeks later. Winter then went very cold in the mid-teens and snowy with plants and ground freezing. Today came a big thaw, I checked the plants and they have completely rebounded. With a mild streak I am confident that I will be able to harvest again in 3 weeks.

Review:

I ordered this last year and grew it under plastic in my raised bed garden. Last winter was brutally cold and snowy. These plants survived just fine and I had wonderful spinach which was not at all bitter even when it was getting warm in the late Spring. I wanted to save the seeds and the plant grew gigantic. Problem was, I couldn't figure out why it was not giving me any seeds until I found the little furry culprit - a chipmunk who was eating the seed right off the plant. LOL! So I am ordering more seeds from Baker Creek. ;o)

Review:

I have grown this spinach for at least 6 years now, and it never fails. Spinach leaves get big and tasty. You can tell this is a strong variety, it takes a lot to kill it. Also, I have had volunteer spinach pop up the following spring.

What are the pros? cold hardy

What are the cons? bolts with heat

Review:

Recommended variety in McMahon's American Gardener as the most hardy off all spinach...and it really preforms well in the cold. Try it in a cold frame or low tunnel and you will be very happy to have fresh greens all winter.
